Ghurka chef is my favourite take-away in Aberdeen. The food is reliably delicious and fresh. We regularly (probably too regularly!) order from here and also eat in the restaurant occasionally. The staff are very friendly and welcoming with great service. Can't recommend this place enough!

Very reasonably priced and consistently good quality. Chicken tikka masala and chicken pakora is the best I've had in Aberdeen, give them a try!

This used to be my favourite restaurant but I won't be back. The garlic chilli chicken was bland and tasteless and the chicken was inedible. I don't know if it wasn't cooked or if was that cheap doctored chicken people buy. No apology was given...More
